I have noticed something.....I was given a prosthesis to wear a few years ago, but I stopped using it as it was basically useless when I wanted to eat... I just decided to do without.
But recently I have noticed the teeth on my upper jaw were moving down...without something to bite on they are slipping down. I dug out my prosthesis and tired it on an sure enough the bite pattern is quite different.
I'm not sure it will actually cause any issue, in fact I'm planning to get at least my back wisdom tooth removed soon since its very hard to clean due to the surgery and seems to be decaying. But it might be something to consider if you are having a prosthesis fitted...its mainly to stop your upper teeth above any jaw surgery from descending. My own prosthesis is unlikely to reverse this damage but I can still wear it, but the issue of not being able to eat with it remains...so I'll let nature take its course.
that's it...nots really much of a news bulletin but I'm in pretty good heath, with no cancer related tales to tell, so I'll fade back into the mist and report anything that might come up in the future.
